positive reinforcement

I appreciated all the support regarding Jacksons' behavior issues (aka suspected ADHA). After a lot of prayer and discussion, we are taking it one day at a time and are working with his teacher on some behavior modifications with positive re-inforcement. While not ruling out Western remedies, we've been using more natural approach with an enhancement called Buried Treasure Added Attention or FOCUS sold in health food stores. The product's positive reviews and documented endorsements by other moms, was exciting. Two tbspn mixed with milk or juice, twice per day. It's sweet and tropical flavor is easily disguised for the discerning 1st-Grader. Perhaps this, coupled with the "fear of G" and consistent bribery we've offered, has made a difference. Last week's "deal" was 3 consecutive smiley faces reported from his teacher would earn the pirate putt-putt golf, with a friend! The boys had a wonderful time and we enjoyed their imaginations and "secret agent" antics! Kids are so cool, and we enjoyed having Big J!
